Blue Mass for First Responders

On Saturday, September 29th, 5:15PM at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, members of law enforcement and first responders–along with their families and the public–are invited to a special Blue Mass honoring their courageous service and asking for God’s protection and blessings as we all work together to build up the common good. Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda. September 29th is the Feast Day of Saint Michael the Archangel, patron saint of first responders. People of all faiths are welcome! Special seating will be available for those coming in uniform, as well as their families.

Monday Bible Study

Join Father Sajdak and fellow parishioners in a five-part study of the Book of Revelation, perhaps the strangest book in the New Testament. We will look at such questions as: Who wrote this book? What is its purpose? How many prophecies in the book have come true? Study sessions will be held every Monday in October at 6PM in the parish hall. See you there!

150th Anniversary Gala Dinner – Volunteers Needed!

On Sunday, November 4th we will celebrate the 150th Anniversary of our parish’s founding at the Town & Country Club. Many of our dear friends—including Marist Frs. Paul Morrissey, Ron Nikodem and Jim Duffy—will be joining us for the celebration. We are still forming committees to assist with the planning and operations for our Galabring your many talents and gifts! We have plenty of opportunities for those who enjoy communications and promotions, securing or providing sponsorships, finding or donating gifts for auction, mailing invitations, participating in ticket sales, and welcoming our parishioners, friends and many special guests at the event. If you can help, please contact Cat Parkhill at or 952-457-3685. Invitations for the Gala will soon be sent by mail. If you do not receive an invitation (or if we do not have your current mailing address), please contact Mark McCoy, Parish Administrator, at 651-224-3379 to reserve your seat.

Eucharistic Ministers

St. Louis Church is very much in need of Eucharistic Ministers to help out at all of the weekend Masses. If you would be willing to volunteer an hour of your time while you are at Sunday Mass it would be most appreciated. As our faith teaches us, we are called to serve. Being a Eucharistic Minister does not require that you be a reader at Mass. Please call or email the parish office at 651-224- 3379 or

Free Parking

Ample free parking is available for weekend Masses (as well as those which fall on “bank” holidays) just steps from St. Louis Church in the Andersen Human Services Building parking ramp across 10th Street. Enter through the “Contract” entrance from Minnesota Street. You can descend to street level either through the stairway at the corner of 10th and Minnesota, or by the elevators located in the opposite (northwest) corner of each level. Ascending back to your parking level can only be done via the elevator. If the barrier is down at the exit, approach slowly and the gate will open. Note that the church also has a small parking lot off 10th Street, and parking is allowed right next to the church on 10th Street during weekday masses.

Any Changes?

If you have changed your address, telephone number or email address, or you wish to receive or discontinue contribution envelopes, please call the parish office to update your records and preferences at 651-224-3379. Note that if you’ve been a member for a few years we may not have an email address on file for you yet.
